The Turkish prime minister is a “genocide denier”, trying to cover up the slaughter of 1,5 Armenia.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday slammed as “discriminatory and racist” a French parliament bill making it illegal to deny the mass killing of Armenian by Ottoman Turks nearly a century a century ago was genocide.
Erdogan said Turkey would implement measures against fellow NATO member France “step by step.”
Earlier Tuesday, France urged Ankara not to overreact to the bill.
Speaking on Canal+ television Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, who was personally against the move, said the new law was “ill-timed”, but called on Ankara to remain calm.
Lawmakers in France’s upper house (Senate) voted in favor of the draft law outlawing genocide denial on Monday after almost six hours of debate. The lower house had backed it in December, prompting Ankara to cancel all economic, political and military meetings with Paris and recall its ambassador for consultations.

I think its about time that a major international player calls Turkey a “genocide denier”.
If the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan do not acknowledge the slaughter of close to 1,5 million Armenian Christians in 1915 and 1916, He do not deserve anything by a criminal trial.
“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?
Turkey is today as ethically cleansed for Christians, as Nazi-Germany were classed for Jews. Something to reflect on, for all who hail their NATO-member. Turkey become a member in 1952, to secure American presence at the very border of Communist Russia.
